#CALL_TO_ACTION: Style Squad Brought to you by Ackermans – ENTRIES NOW OPEN

The Ackermans Style Squad 2015 Competition has opened. It’s back for its second year, after a successful 1st year run in 2014. What is Style Squad, you ask? It’s simple: It’s Ackermans’ online blogging competition. The search for 20 of South Africa’s young, up and coming fashion interest bloggers; 10 boys and 10 girls, complete a series of tasks and challenges, all in the bid to be that ultimate winning Style Squad member – who also happens to walk away with R15 000 cash! There may be twenty in the beginning, but at the end – there can only be one.

We are small-time bloggers and a platform that promotes this form of expression is a friend of ours. And, over and above that – our Editor, Monde Mtsi, is one of the judges! Yay! Boom! Life just got served to you.

As for the rest, meet the judges:

Dineo Moeketsi – Actress/Singer/Dancer/TV Presenter
This stunning celebrity is hot property on the SA entertainment scene. Not only is Dineo Moeketsi a seasoned TV presenter, but also a talented performing artist. Dineo always remains true to her roots. "I've learnt that no matter how well things go in your life, you have to stay humble and true to yourself, consider others and remember where you come from."

Candice Robinson – Fashion Editor at Ackermans Club Magazine
Candice confesses: "I owe my introduction to the endless possibilities of fashion to my Grandmother. When I was 7 years old she gave me my first sewing lesson and by 10 years old I was making my own clothing." As far as this trendy fashion Editor can remember, she has always loved fashion and how it makes a person feel; "I adore the freedom, confidence and creativity in wearing something you love".

Monde Mtsi – Fashion Blogger
Born in Cape Town, raised in Langa Township, Monde has worked hard to be where he is and continues to strive to make a mark in the fashion scene in South Africa.  Monde currently spends his time as copywriter at an award-winning advertising agency, growing his blog and working as a personal stylist. “My life is as magical as I make it.” Being part of the Style Squad judging panel is exciting, as I now get an opportunity to be part of history in the making. We will be moulding the next generation of amazing SA creatives – and there’s nothing more thrilling and honourable than that.”

Neil Roberts Mayne – Fashion Photographer
"Fashion is my life!" Neil Roberts exclaims excitedly. This talented fashion photographer discovered fashion and photography as a model, when he was lucky enough to travel to the fashion capitals of London, Milan and Paris. Since then, he has never looked back – exploring all the different avenues of the business, from producing to photography and directing. Neil is not the kind of guy who likes talking too much about himself. He would rather spend his time and energy doing what he likes best – taking epic pics!

Angelique Jansen van Rensburg – Art Director/Fashion Stylist
Fashion has a fan in this Art Director and Fashion Stylist. Angelique Jansen van Rensburg is an international local creative whose love for style has been inspired through her childhood. Angelique's success in her career is partly credited to her ability to mix and match textures, colours, moods and inspirations, to foresee trends and to be capable of applying them to her work to create new images within fashion. "It's important to dream big", she says. "Surround yourself with beautiful things, be comfortable in your own skin and rock absolutely anything you wear."

So if you’re between the ages of 9 – 13 years old, have a passion for fashion, an eye for detail or know someone who is – then ENTER HERE. NOW!
